Invision 2020 2018 summer events across the state

    2018 summer events across the state

    Saturday, June 9, 2018, is “National Get Outdoors Day.” Aside from just one day outdoors, we have gathered a list of festivals, fairs, celebrations, and other events taking place all over Indiana throughout the summer to inspire people to see what communities have to offer. Some of the events may pique your interest as you consider what to do in our area of the state, as you plan a day-trip, a weekend get-a-way, or an extended stay somewhere else in Indiana.

    In April, the Indiana Senate Democrats discussed some options for trips as well as sites throughout the state that offer free admission or discounts for planned visits. Aside from the destinations listed in our previous post, you might want to know what other options are available to you and your family. Below is a list of events taking place throughout the state, divided by region. Although this is not a comprehensive list, we hope this compilation will get your summer up and running.
